It was then that the young Muller started thinking seriously about building his own shop. In 1991, he achieved that rather lofty goal and the House of Franck Muller opened for business. Almost immediately, the new Muller timepieces became an overnight sensation all over the U.S. and Europe.Today, Franck Muller’s watches combine Haute Horlogerie expertise with their signature boldness and creativity for a line of watches that’s second-to-none. Every year, the Franck Muller watch company launches one or sometimes more new lines of timepieces. They usually feature something exclusive and very special, something never seen before in the industry. The first one launched in 1993 and had split-seconds chronographs, as well as a perpetual calendar, a minute repeater, and an internal temperature indicator.Of course, it just stands to reason that any watch that is as iconic as many of Franck Muller’s would be worn by a number of well-known celebrities. Right? And, Franck Muller’s famous fans include the always amazing and talented Sir Elton John, the lovely actress Ms. Demi Moore, Portuguese football manager José Mourinho, and well-known rapper 50 Cent, just to name a few. And now, for 2018, Franck Muller introduces the Skafander Diver’s Watch.The all-new Skafander Diver’s Watch from Franck Muller is tonneau-shaped and sports a truly innovative inner dive bezel. Now watches that are square, tonneau-shaped or even designed for diving are definitely not a new thing. And, the watches of the past that could be considered good examples may have had something as ludicrous as a tonneau-shaped bezel that turned on a round track, or as useless as a stationary bezel like the Easy Diver watch by Roger Dubuis, or even a form case with a round elapsed time bezel. But, Muller was a bit smarter and put his watch’s dive-timer-bezel right on the dial. It’s strategically placed right between the minute track and the hour markers. There’s also an orange triangle for marking the beginning of your dive, and then the initial 20-dive-minutes are marked by blue highlighting.The Skafander Diver’s Watch has an inner bezel that is operated by two pushers on the case’s left side. In addition, there is a button at 8:00 that is advancing the timing ring in steps that are one minute long, while there’s also an upper button that is advancing in five-minute steps and it’s located at 10:00. And, between those two buttons, there’s a locking mechanism that serves to secure them after the bezel is set. This prevents any accidental advancement. Now, the inner-elapsed-time bezel isn’t necessarily a new feature to fine watches, since Bell & Ross put it on their BR02 diver. However, Franck Muller’s version is quite unique. unusual, albeit fussy to operate.The Skafander Diver is a large watch and offers everything that discerning divers look for in a dive watch. And, although this all may sound really good to all of you watch fans out there, don’t get too excited yet. These amazing Skafander Diver’s Watches won’t be available until September 2018. But, if you’re lucky enough to own one, it’ll surely prove to be well worth the wait.
